Hackaday’s Most Excellent Munich Adventure

Bags are packed… it’s insane the amount of random electronics I carry with me on a trip. But who doesn’t want to do some prototyping on the plane?

In case you haven’t heard, the Hackaday Crew is headed to Munich. The coming week is Electronica. We’ll be prowling “the world’s leading trade show for electronic components” looking for the jewels of interest to the hacking community. Watch our Twitter feed for updates on those adventures.

But of course, Thursday the 13th is all about Hackaday Munich. The place will be packed! During the afternoon we feature hands-on hacking of embedded systems. The hardware we’re supplying is already spoken for. But you should bring along your own dev boards to hack on, or just come to watch the fun.

Get a ticket to The Hackaday Prize party. This includes a talk by [Sprite_TM], the announcement of the Grand Prize winner for the 2014 Hackaday Prize, followed by a party with music by [DJ Muallen]. Nobody should miss this event so please help get the word out. See you there!

  1. Are you guys going to be there on Friday? I won’t be able to attend through the week, but will be passing through after completing a work trip by then. Wondering if it’s worth stopping by as everything winds down.

  2. Munich is a VERY fun place. Been there quite a few times, partied my butt of and remember very little between about the 5th beer and waking back up. Gotta watch out for the beer…

  3. Wish I could go, hope everyone has a good time! The five finalists are truly awesome.

    Writing this comment, though, to say that the illustration on this post is rad – who did it??

  4. Alles Gute auf Deine Reise Hackaday. Enjoy your time over there. I have a cousin who may be doing some photography over there at the event. I would have loved to tag along, but alas, engineering in my line of work does not really “allow me the time” to be away to do cool things. All in all, enjoy the Bratwurst, Bretzeln, und Bier (Sausages, pretzels and beer.) Don’t forget to pack a few EU plug adapters to use your switching supplies on. That 220/50 is killer compared to our 110/60.

  5. Prototyping on the plane? Some people, on the plane, are getting very nervous right now.
    Also, I wonder, how easy it would be for you to get through security without a lot of questions being asked.

  6. Okay, ich hoffe das mein Deutsch zu verstehen ist… es ist ja ein weile her das ich es gesprochen hab.

    Working on the talk as we speak… I hope I can entertain you guys. I hope you don’t mind me diving directly into a new hack I did.

  7. Really looking forward to this! surrounded by people by similar interests and mindset, all computer enthusiasts, not like friends from my neighborhood who are just obsessed with football etc.
    Can’t wait until Thursday!


    1. Thanks for the kind words, I’ve had the good fortune of working with the Hackaday guys for a little bit now and it’s always been really fun. You’ll see a good amount of my work throughout the website and products. Really excited to see everything these guys are doing and where it heads next.
